This is the bill that designates where any monies realized by an increase in the State's sales tax would be allocated. Of particular interest to us in this regard is the Outdoor Recreation Trust Fund. This bill proposes what percentage of the funds (your tax dollars) goes to each category. The percentages set forth in the bill can be broken down into a couple of categories; DNR managed accounts, IDALS managed accounts and IDOT managed accounts. The accounts managed by the DNR include the DNR general fund, watershed protection (with IDALS), REAP, local conservation partners and lake and stream restoration. The account managed by IDALS is soil and non-point source water. The account managed by the IDOT is water and land trails. The DNR natural resources general fund would get 18% of the money, the watershed protection (with IDALS) 15%, REAP 10%, local conservation partners 9% and lake and stream restoration 10%. The IDALS soil and non-point source water would get 34% of the funds. The IDOT water and land trails would get 4% of the funds. I don't know what that means in dollar amounts for each fund. I'm sure there are projections out there, I just haven't found them. Link to the bill: https://www.legis.iowa.gov/legislation/BillBook?ba=SSB 3116&ga=88 It's a 46 page bill and the section that covers the Outdoor Recreation Trust Fund can be found on pages 17-36. If you follow the link to read the bill, also click on the lobbyist link. I've never seen so many lobbyists registered on a bill which probably means the percentages will change again. Also of note there is sure to be (if there isn't already) a House version which could have entirely different percentages.
